The savings account at ING now stands at $1256.50 this does not include the original $400 that was stashed away in a CD.
My upcoming flight home was booked and cost me a little over $400 so that did not hurt as much as I thought it would.
I am back to my 20+ hours at the part-time gig so the weekly paycheck should go back to looking pretty healthy for March and onwards. This will be needed with the upcoming trip and my $1000 credit card pay off per month.
I am trying to stay focused on my goals. My main priority right now is paying off the credit cards and staying on top of Sallie Mae weekly payments since it is a private student loan. The mini-efund is well above my original goal of $1,000 so I can leave that on auto-pilot and not worry about it for a while.
